As of Monday, Jan. 28, the death toll as a result of the Jan. 18 in Tlahuelilpan, Hidalgo, had reached 115, with 32 victims still hospitalized, according to the Mexican Health Secretariat.

The explosion occurred at an illegal tap of the Tuxpan-Tula gasoline pipeline, just 100 kilometers northeast of Mexico City, during a gasoline shortage provoked by a federal program implemented by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (SMLO) to curb fuel thefts in late December.

So far, only the remains of 16 bodies of the victims of the blast have been identified.
